Paul Pogba is “increasingly unlikely” to sign a new contract extension with Manchester United amid Paris Saint-Germain’s interest.

The talks between representatives of Pogba and United did not lead to a solution as reports reportedly rejected a specific offer from the French midfielder.

The 28-year-old has entered the final year of his current contract and United must now make a decision whether to sell him this summer or allow him to see his contract.

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Pogba – but so far there has been no official application or contact from club to club.

Pogba, who will be able to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January, wants to weigh all of his options before deciding on what is likely to be the last big deal of his career.

United have been looking for alternative midfield goals, including Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes and Leon Goretzka from Bayern Munich.

Varane returns for Real pre-season as representatives finalize Man Utd terms

It is believed that Raphael Varane is keen to join Man Utd this summer

Meanwhile, Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has returned to pre-season training as his representatives continue to forge personal relationships with United.

United will not initiate official talks with Real about a fee until personal terms have been agreed.

Once a final deal is reached, it is hoped that United can quickly negotiate a transfer fee with Real and add the French international to their squad.

It is believed that Varane himself is keen to become runners-up in the Premier League last season.

Varane would be a significant letter of intent to face Manchester City for the Premier League title next season as he has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world since joining Real from French club Lens in the summer of 2011.

He played over 350 games for the club and was played 79 times by France, helping them to World Cup glory in 2018 and starting all four games at Euro 2020 before being eliminated by Switzerland.

Manchester United have signed Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho for £ 73m.

Sancho, whose move to Old Trafford was agreed in principle on July 1, underwent a medical exam earlier this month after attending Euro 2020.

He’s signed a five-year contract with United with an option for an additional year and Sancho will wear the No. 25 jersey for his new team.

Manchester City has a sell-out clause for its former youth player, whose contract in Germany should run until summer 2023.

“I will always be grateful to Dortmund for giving me the opportunity to play first-team football even though I always knew I would return to England one day,” said Sancho on United’s official website.
